Caroline by #SarahMiller is an astonishing book. The writing is close to perfection, and the atmosphere is so richly imagined that you can almost smell the smoke of a prairie fire.
I didn’t want this book to end. I am going to immediately reread it, something I very rarely do.
Caroline tells the beginnings of the #LittleHouseonthePrairie story, from the point of view of Caroline Ingalls. As a child in the 1970s I was blessed to be able to watch the Michael Landon drama on TV, and I must admit that it was the voice of Karen Grassle I heard while reading this.
The book deals with this country’s Westward expansion, and it does show the prejudices then prevalent against Native Americans. I think it is handled well by the author.
